Changes to Infants and Children’s Liquid Acetaminophen

The makers of single-ingredient liquid acetaminophen for infants and children changed the medicine to make it easier for parents and caregivers to use the medicines and to avoid possible dosing errors. The medicines are now made in only one strength (as opposed to the three different strengths previously available) and have age-appropriate dosing directions and devices with each package. 

The new products are now on store shelves, but there may be different concentrations of single-ingredient liquid acetaminophen for infants and children in your medicine cabinets. To learn more about these change, you can listen to a blogger call with pediatrician TJ Gold here.
